The Taylorville VFW will be holding their third annual benefit run on Saturday. The goal is to raise $25,000 from the benefit this weekend. The money raised will go towards disabled veterans by training service dogs for the veterans.
Darrell Devore, President of the VFW Riders in Taylorville, says these dogs are specifically trained for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Devore says you don’t need to have a motorcycle to participate. He says it should be a day filled with fun events.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. with the group leaving the Taylorville VFW at 12:15 sharp. The run will conclude around 5:30 p.m., but there will be a live auction and more events to follow at the VFW hall. Devore says this is the first event where rain isn’t in the forecast, so he hopes this will be the best event yet.
